The estate agent has referred the conveyancing that they have used before. Do we need to instruct this firm?
If you opt for a solicitor referred this way, you may have the benefit of the agent's willingness to encourage a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.
Should I list my property with more than one estate agent?
The choice is entirely up to you and your specific circumstances. Going with a sole agent is probably the cheapest option (although the reach to buyers is dependent on how many clients are on their books), while multiple agents will be more expensive (but will reach a broader client base).
If you’re looking for a quick sale or the market is rather sluggish, it makes sense to put your property on with a number of agents. If the market is buoyant, it makes more sense to place the property with a sole agent.
Whichever you choose, you should always check the terms and conditions so that you know what service you’re getting for your money and how much it will cost you once the home is sold. You should also understand if there are penalties should you decide to place the property with more or fewer agents later on during the agreement period.
How much time does conveyancing legal work require, in your experience?
